QSA (1) RoL (138747 P.O. 2. Cl. E. B. Horner. H.M.S. Terrible.), officially engraved in sloping capitals.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Eli Benjamin Horner, R.N., is confirmed on the medal roll as having served aboard H.M.S. Terrible as part of the Naval Brigade at the Relief of Ladysmith. The roll also notes that he died in February 1900 of Enteric Fever, at Frere. He appears on the Witu Expedition aboard HMS Boadicea some years earlier, being entitled to an East and West Africa Medal with clasp ‘Witu 1890’.
